‘I have attended some superb workshops and courses at Pennie’s & Kevin’s wonderful creative space in Copmanthorpe. To be given the opportunity to learn from artists such as Freya Horsley, Phil Reynolds and Paddy Smith has developed my practice dramatically over a relatively short period of time. I have managed to find my own style with their support and encouragement in this beautiful and nurturing setting. I can highly recommend York Art and Crafts to anyone who would like to explore drawing, painting and printmaking at any level, in a relaxed and support environment.’ - Karen Turner - Artist
